Year-End Mania is the Key’s annual survey of the things below the surface that made 2017 incredible. Today, Megan Cooper shares the soundtrack that kept her sane on SEPTA.

This past year, I’ve spent a quite a bit of time on public transport. Not having a car, while splitting my life between the ‘burbs as I finished up school (woo I’m done!) and the city as I worked and went to many a gig, you could say the R5 Regional Rail line was —  for better or for worse — sort ...

Lame-O Records‘ annual Rock Residency benefit series at Boot & Saddle returns for its third year next month, and WOW would you look at that lineup. A Lame-O event never disappoints, but this year they’ve put together an exceptionally stacked roster of labelmates and friends to take over Boot & Saddle every Thursday in January. And it’s all for a good cause — the proceeds from each show will benefit several local charity organizations.

There are almost too many amazing artists to list, but we’ll list them anyway: The residency kicks off ...

Free at Noon Flashback: Slaughter Beach, Dog’s set mixes sliding and shredding guitar

I love when crunchy bands play Free at Noon. Especially local crunchy bands — that’s just the Cherry on top. Haaaa. You know, those bands that are more thought of in context of packing sweaty basements or DIY venues than playing WCL at an hour when coffee is still vital. And that’s exactly the musical forecast today’s early afternoon set called for, which saw Philly’s Slaughter Beach, Dog closing out the day’s rare local-favorite double-header .

Not only did this change of pace showcase well-deserving, insanely talented artists, it ...

A show like this Friday’s Free at Noon doesn’t come along every week — not only is this week’s concert a rare doubleheader, it’s also a chance to see performances by two of Philly’s best local acts together in one place — and at lunchtime, nonetheless. Slaughter Beach, Dog and Cherry will both perform, and while they’re each fixtures of the Philly scene on their own, lately their careers have been running parallel: both artists released debut LPs in October, and both played Lame-O Records‘ 5th birthday showcase a few ...

Lame-O Records’ 5th Birthday bash is coming up this Sunday at First Unitarian Church, which will be a big Lame-O family gathering featuring performances by Slaughter Beach, Dog, Shannen Moser, Cherry and no thank you. And now, there’s an official pre-party for the party. Located in the Church’s Side Chapel will be an acoustic pop-up show featuring “Lame-O and Friends.”

Though the specific “friends” are not detailed, a Facebook post notes that “A LOT of friends will be playing.” And knowing how stacked the record label’s artist roster is, I think it’s safe to assume this is ...

Watch Slaughter Beach, Dog and pals expose the 10-gallon sized “truth” behind Birdie

Slaughter Beach, Dog’s album Birdie is available everywhere today via Lame-O Records. But before then, in an incredibly bold move of transparency, Jake Ewald and pals decided it was time to expose the horribly dark, forbidden, entirely and completely shocking secret behind the album through a mini documentary.

The video begins with Ewald’s loved ones describing their relationship with him, and detailing his exemplary character — well, at least, once exemplary character. Things quickly go south (err west?) when Ewald’s true colors are revealed.

Having teased the record with twang-tinged tracks, “Building the Ark,” ...

Outside of doing that sports-related band Modern Baseball. Jake Ewald takes his somber voice to his project Slaughter, Beach Dog, where his melancholy tunes are channeled to a single and signature vision.

Ewald brought some of his newest tunes to a session for Audiotree’s new project “Far Out”, which takes artists to some of the nooks and crannies of this country to record some unconventional sessions. Finding himself inside a Chicago dry cleaners among the textiles and pitter-patter of a sewing machine, Ewald does what he does best by combining his wonderfully-crafted ...

Jake Ewald grows up on Slaughter Beach, Dog’s eclectic debut

When an established musician starts a new band, it’s hard to avoid drawing comparisons. There’s almost bound to be some overlap, especially when that musician is a primary songwriter for both projects. While this is definitely the case on Welcome, the debut record from Jake Ewald’s Slaughter Beach, Dog, the Modern Baseball guitarist manages to take his songwriting in a new direction. In fact, he takes it in several, and it’s those deviations that make the album so successful.

Granted, the thoughtful lyrics and air ...
